Above is a photo of Miss Shane Ward, Hyack Princess 2016. She is riding in New Westminster’s “Mini” float entry with three other American community Ambassadors in their own “Mini” floats at the Portland 2016 Grand Floral Parade this past weekend. All 100 entries were entirely decorated with flowers and other organic elements. The Hyack Festival Association’s entry was built and decorated by several volunteers who traveled to Portland several times prior to parade. Portland “Spectators were very gracious and welcoming” said Miss Shane Ward, after her blue sky ride in Portland’s 8 KM parade route.
